Who would like a huge list of addresses of active film junkies? I can think of a lot of commercial interests, can't you?

Harvesting these from IA, as it stands now, is a piece of cake. Perhaps this thread should be taken down until an internal sweep of the above xml lines (and perhaps others) can be performed.

If anyone from archive.org is reading this, please respond to this thread and people's e-mails.

If you don't respond we'll have to start warning users ourselves about this flaw, they deserve to know whether their addresses are being given out or not.

I couldn't find a way to report this via this site. I took (the very small, I hope) liberty of harvesting the email address of someone who seems to be associated with IA. I,of course, fully identified myself and provided my own email address to them. It's so easy to do and there are thousands of addresses exposed.

I hope I am mistaken, but this seems a huge security issue that needs to be examined right this minute.

That's an excellent idea, I might do that as well.
